The festivities are less than a couple of months away so now is the perfect time to start booking everything in. But hurry, other organisations are doing it to so don’t leave it till the last minute to book your food, drinks, venue or entertainment. The earlier you begin preparation for your corporate Christmas event the more pitfalls you can avoid.

Plan now and you’ll avoid these mini-disasters:

  • Last-minute stress
  • Christmas Party in the office
  • Boring Entertainment
  • Poor food and drink quality


Now you have that sense of urgency to begin planning it’s time to consider whether your event will feature Santa and his Reindeers or perhaps roaming elves for an entertainment option or even an inflatable North Pole for the kids. It’s time to get creative and make the most out of the celebration.

Here are five popular and different event ideas for your christmas party:

  1. Family Fun Day Event  

Family Fun Days are a fantastic way to appreciate the support that families make to your employees, exclusively for all the work, commitment and long hours they have devoted to the company throughout the year.

Some of the fundamental aspects when planning family fun days are catering for all ages so entertainment for children and adults is essential, any equipment or infrastructure to bring in will have to be considered. Equipment such as jumping castles, carnival food, roaming entertainers, or even inflatable water slides are extremely enjoyable and provide entertainment for the entire day.

  1. Team Building Events 

A team building activity day followed by a picnic or barbecue out of the office environment can create great laughter and fun for all working colleagues. A Christmas-themed team building event can be combined with a variety of bonding exercises which create great working relationships. These events can even be designed to have a charity outcome for those who are in need at Christmas.

  1. Luxury Retreat

If it has been a successful year of trade why not reward the entire workforce with a relaxing weekend away as a team. Include golf and spa treatments, wine-tasting, team dinners, cooking and yoga classes. This will not only relax the workforce but the employees will feel more valued as employees and will drive them to continue to work hard for the following year.

  1. Unique Experience

So you’ve done the barbecues, the fun days out, the regular christmas dinners and would like to wow your employees and have a Christmas party different to anything they have ever done before. Consider what may be a different way to experience Sydney, it could be a boat cruise around the harbour to enjoy drinks, dinner and a firework display or climbing the harbour bridge, another idea could be balloon riding at sunrise or even jet boating around the harbour. These ideas requiring a typically larger budget therefore may be best suited to smaller workforces.

  1. Cocktail Christmas Party

Never underestimate a straightforward and impromptu Christmas party at a local venue that is within great distance for all employees to attend. There are a bunch of creative ways to turn a simple cocktail venue into a party that will enable everyone to enjoy themselves, feel relaxed and be remembered. Add a DJ, band or even a karaoke machine, delicious catering, perhaps a theme such as fancy dress, yearly awards, some fun and all-inclusive games. Remember to book venues early to avoid having the Christmas party at your work office, no employee wants this.

These are just a few Christmas party ideas to get you started planning. At the end of the day it comes down to choosing a party that meets your budget, associates with the company culture, caters for all employees and is suitable for the entire workforce.
